Interlibrary Loan

I you need to access an article that UF does not own, use the Interlibrary Loan service by submitting a request through ILLiad.  Complete the forms with all of your citation and delivery information.  Because the information is coming from other libraries the turn around times vary, but articles are usually available in 24-48 hours.
